Out of nowhere, my Kindle starts wearing out very quickly. If I turn off the internet while it is in sleep mode, it lasts longer, but after having it over a year, it never was a problem before now. I noticed that it will power up if I get a notification (someone posts on facebook and it tells me, etc.) and I only know that because I had the volume turned up and I heard the alert. I turned off the notifications but it is still a problem!!

Try adding (& using!) a couple of apps:

Battery HD and
Clean Master - Free Optimizer

Battery HD will help maintain the meter, and Clean Master will remind you to sweep junk that may be in the background, using battery.

Do turn off wi-fi if you're not using it (unless of course you're waiting on an email or download).
